Applying for a residence permit to look for a job after recognition of foreign professional qualifications

Description

If the equivalence of your foreign professional qualification has been established or you have received the professional training permit, you can be granted a temporary residence permit to look for a job or to take up self-employment directly after your previous recognition procedure. This residence permit allows gainful employment without restriction.

You can only apply for a residence permit in person at the immigration authority responsible for your place of residence.

  • You submit the required documents in the original and pay the application fee.
  • The Foreigners' Registration Office checks whether the conditions for grant are met.
  • If all requirements are met, the Foreigners' Registration Office will record your biometric data (photo, fingerprints) and order the electronic residence permit (eAT) from Bundesdruckerei GmbH.
  • As soon as the eAT is completed, it will be handed over to you by the Foreigners' Registration Office.

Please contact the competent immigration authority.

You already have a residence permit for the purpose of the recognition procedure of a foreign professional qualification in Germany.

  • a secure livelihood,
  • a clarified identity,
  • Possession of a valid national passport.
  • Valid National Pass
